Bear Cub

Partial day camp for children ages 4 - 6.

DETAILS

Summer Camp 2021

Bear Cub helps guide children as they discover animals throughout the zoo. Each curriculum has a theme; the lens through which campers will build skills such as mindfulness, peer collaboration, empathy and scientific inquiry. A daily routine including morning circle, bathroom breaks, snacks and lunch will help set campers up for school year success. While the daily routine is the structure of the curriculum there is day to day flexibility which allows instructors to focus on campers’ immediate needs and interests; each day is a new adventure.

The process for requesting financial assistance has changed and is now part of our online registration system.

During the registration process, you will have the opportunity to select whether you’d like to apply for a scholarship, and provide some basic information pertaining to your request. Completing that information will trigger the system to allow you to “check out” while paying a minimum fee of $0. This reserves your program selection while staff review your application. Please be aware, your account balance and shopping cart will show the full cost of the program until a staff member is able to review your request and adjust program fees accordingly. All applications will be reviewed by zoo staff, and an updated statement of charges with adjusted program fees will be sent following review.

Please don’t hesitate to reach out to us at camps@zoo.org if you have any questions. We are happy to walk you through this new process.
